Hi tc;
Nice video, but minor correction-Weybourne is on the North Norfolk railway.
I wa chasing steam on the North York’s Moors railway yesterday, with great sound effects when the Schools left Levisham for Pickering.

Thanks martyn. Edited. We stayed at a B&B right opposite Yaxham on the Mid Norfolk. I'll put a video up soon of that.

Great vids, Trev. :thankyousign:
I run my Farish WD 2-8-0 so often it's easy to forget the 2-10-0 existed!

I know, but a 9F is not a WD, George, even if it is a 2-10-0 :D

Thanks for that. What I was trying to get across is that with no WD 2-10-0 available RTR (although Dr Al has built at least one) I run my Farish 2-8-0 a lot and tend to forget the 2-10-0 version was made so it's great to see that one on the NNR.

WD 2-8-0 numbers 90000 - 90732
According to my jolly old Observers Book 1964 they were everywhere but on the SR and WR

WD 2-10-0 numbers 90750 - 90774
According to the same book these were all based in Scotland

Last year a friend and I were on the NNR for an evening shed tour, and there was one Austerity on service trains and the second was working trial trains after overhaul. Very impressive! But it took me back to I think 2008 when we saw both of them,an the 9F, at an Augaust bank holiday working day.

Went to Wensleydale railway yesterday; much more scenic than NYMR in my opinion, but needs considerable work on the infrastructure and regular steam, both of which are seemingly in their plans....
